“We have seen tremendous leadership from young people in and around COP26. The real drive to secure our futures comes from the children and young people. As the leaders of the future, children must be listened to.” (Kirsty McNeill, Executive Director of Policy, Advocacy and Campaign at Save the Children)

“We can’t keep doing this again and again and not getting results. Give us a seat at the table so we can secure our future.” (Dorothy Kazombo Mwale, youth climate activist from Malawi)
